Cold Shoulder Ankara Dress with Pockets

This is my submission for the Pretty Girls Sew September Sew-Along. I was chosen as the Pretty Girl Sew of the Month.. Thanks PGS!!! ;) Please see the pattern review below for details about the fabric and pattern used. 

Pattern Review (Simplicity 2406)

Description: Knee length Misses' Dress with Cold Shoulder Sleeves; pattern designed by Cynthia Rowley. Click HERE for other Cynthia Rowley Fashion Sewing Pattern Collection: Simplicity Patterns.

Fabric Used: Wax Print Fabric (Ankara) made by Vlisco; purchased at 
Obokun African Fabric & Design, Hyattsville, MD

Pattern Sizing: I cut out a Size 6

Were the Instructions easy to follow? Yes, but the sleeves are a bit tricky. You'd have to read it carefully so you won't miss any steps.

Likes or Dislikes about the Pattern: I like the different variation of the sleeves and dress lengths. I chose this sleeves option because it makes the dress stand out more. No dislikes..

Pattern Alterations or Design Changes made: No pattern alterations and I excluded the belt. I was going to take in the dress even more at the side seams and also remove the pockets, but I changed my mind. Wearing the dress with a little room in it and excluding the belt turned the dress into a shift dress. :)

Would you Sew it again? Yes...
